SOUTHINGTON - Aldi says it will offer Southington residents a fresh, new shopping experience as it opens its first Southington store at 811 Queen St.
To celebrate the opening, Aldi will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Thursday. The public is invited.
Following the ceremony, the first 100 customers will receive a golden ticket, each containing Aldi gift cards of various amounts.
Customers can also tour the store, sample Aldi brand products and enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of Aldi produce.
Aldi offers a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, including several organic produce items.
“We know Southington residents are looking for a great value and quality groceries they love,” said Bruce Persohn, South Windsor division vice president of Aldi. “By offering quality exclusive brand products at affordable prices, Aldi is the answer to customers’ needs.”
Thanks to input from customers, the Southington store presents a new look, offering a modern and convenient shopping experience.
